Knocked Up (Unrated Special Edition) (2007)
When a one-night stand that should have ended with the sunrise has unexpectedly permanent consequences, the reluctant odd couple attempts to transform their tentative relationship into a lasting love in a conception comedy from the people who brought viewers The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Twenty-four-year-old entertainment journalist Allison Scott (Katherine Heigl) was on the fast track to the big time when an alcohol-fueled one-night stand with responsibility-shirking slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) found her professional priorities taking a back seat to the prospect of parenthood. Now, as overgrown kid Ben is faced with the choice of maintaining his carefree lifestyle or assuming the responsibilities of fatherhood, his decision to stick around is only the beginning of the unlikely couple's nine-month courtship. In order to make things work between the pair, however, there's going to have to be some compromise, and when Allison and Ben decide to take a shot at love, they quickly find that building a relationship from scratch isn't nearly as easy as making a baby. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Knocked Up (Unrated Special Edition) (Bonus Disc) (2007)
Katherine Heigl (GREY'S ANATOMY) and Seth Rogan star in this hilarious and touching comedy as two mismatched people brought together by a one-night-stand that results in an accidental pregnancy. Using many of the same actors from his previous film, THE 40-YEAR OLD VIRGIN, and his cult television series' UNDECLARED and FREAKS AND GEEKS, director Judd Apatow once again finds fresh humor in relationships and sex. Young, bright, and talented, Alison (Heigl) has everything going for her. After being promoted to an on-camera role at E! Television, Alison goes out to celebrate with her older sister, Debbie (Leslie Mann). Not long into the evening Debbie is called home to her kids, leaving Alison in the eager company of charming slacker Ben (Rogen). In the dark of the nightclub and in the ensuing drunk hours, Ben seems like a great guy. But in the sober light of day, Alison quickly discovers the man in her bed is nothing more than an overgrown child with no job, no money, and the social habits of a teenager. Brushing him off politely as a one-time affair, Alison goes on with her life, until two months later she realizes that the unthinkable has happened. Apatow establishes the differences between his protagonists early in the film, bringing their contrasting worlds to life with stellar performances by secondary characters. Paul Rudd has never been better in his role as Alison's bitter brother-in-law, whose somewhat dysfunctional marriage to Alison's feisty but insecure sister unfolds in parallel to Alison and Ben's story. Meanwhile, Ben's home resembles a frat house, and his friends (Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, and Martin Starr), while hilarious, are hardly role models. KNOCKED UP will have audiences cracking up from start to finish, and it also deals with some serious issues about commitment, life choices, and becoming an adult. The film asks universal questions in a sweet and touching way, achieving a sad humor that distinguishes it from other films of its genre.

If this movie is to be believed, men know how to have fun and let loose, in fact they need it biologically, and are to be excused when blowing off responsibility. Women on the other hand, are annoying, clingy, humorless, and needy (especially in the middle of sex). That aside, this movie isn't all that funny, relies on stereotypes you've seen a million times before,and the characters are one-dimensional.

Much like 40 Year Old Virgin, this movie reads more like a TV show than a film and suffers from the same problems. It's kind of funny in parts but ends up being a more slice-of-(very distorted)life luke warm dramedy. A few of the very minor characters have some very funny, very short scenes, my favorites being the asian stoner girlfriend and the assistant producer of E!. I think this unrated version is longer than the original but I didn't like this movie enough to bother finding out. If you really want to watch it, I'd look for the short version or not bother at all even.
